Great start for a new character. He’s believable and the story is gripping and unpredictable.
I love David Monteath as a narrator and have enjoyed him on other series.
I hope there are more books in the pipeline.

Welcome Back!

It has been great to catch up with our old friends again.
Another good story excellently narrated by David Monteath.
The characters are still as wonderful as ever, with moments of laugh out loud humour. Old Hamish complaining about the youth of the day only being interested in their phones and ‘twatter’. Priceless!
Oh! And a good old story too.

Overall, this was a good story, but some of the twists were a bit predictable and it was frustrating to think ‘I know what’s coming up next’ but have to then go through another half hour of listening to be proved right.
The narrator was great. She’s a favourite of mine, but even she became a bit tedious when there was another obvious and predictable turn.

Brilliant

This is only the second Anna-Lou Weatherley I’ve listened to but I am hooked!
I love the twists and turns, together with the humanity of the way this detective looks at life.
Can fully recommend.

Disappointing

I’ve read all the Shetland series up to now and have enjoyed them. But with this story I felt Ann Cleeves was running out of steam. So much so that I haven’t bothered to buy the last story in the series.
Unfortunately it all got a bit predictable. First one murder, then another. Jimmy Perez going off and doing his own thing. I’m a bit sad because I like listening to a whole series. But not this time.

Brilliant!

This had me gripped from the start. I think I guessed who the murderer was quite early on, but that didn’t spoil the story or the anticipation.
Excellently narrated.
Can thoroughly recommend.

Excellent story - kept me guessing.

I must admit it took me a while to get into this, there seemed a lot of characters to get to know quickly, but I’m glad I persevered.
I’m not giving any details about the story, you’ll work it out for yourself.
Just be patient till you get the hang of who everyone is, then ENJOY.

Absolutely brilliant

This was a lovely uncomplicated, funny, sad and happy story.
Brilliant narration, great storyline, no dragging out of the tale.
It made me laugh out loud at times. Then again, the truth of how some people behave left me thinking ‘I know a person like that’.
I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Having just finished and enjoyed another Kerry Fisher audiobook I downloaded the next one.
This was again a very ‘easy to listen to’ story about real people. The book was beautifully narrated with each of the characters very clearly identifiable.
Happy and sad, just like real life. I can recommend.
